Meet Museum curators, guest scientists and others from regional institutions and organizations. Get information on related clubs and organizations and special opportunities to work with geologists, paleontologists and archaeologists.
Families will discover the science and fun of geology, paleontology and archaeology through exhibits and hands-on activities. Kid-friendly crafts will be featured, such as making a rubbing of a 300-million year old fern fossil to take home and frame.
